No one likes having a foul-smelling ride.

Febreze Car Vent Clips Air Freshener Danger

I can't believe that these even made the list. Has anyone had one of these things leak? Well I have and its did $300.00 worth of damage to my dashboard. They will discolor and even eat through some plastics. The scented gel is very hard to remove from any surface especially carpeting. Read the very fine print on the back of the package if you don't believe me. Thanks but I'll stick with the scented trees.

I've even had the tree type paper air fresheners melt into the back of my rear view mirror and had to essentially break it off a tiny bit of plastic to remove. Must have been the summer sun, but be careful of any freshener sticking onto plastics.

The best is just a clean car, freshners are chemical crap, not good for us to breathe and most stink. :smile2:

i clicked this thread cause i saw "top 15 best air..." thinking i was gona be seeing best air filter. =(

If you need to use these air fresheners, i think you need to shower instead of getting one of these.

My wife is a messy eater, and shes eaten in my car multiple times. I have a blanket with duvet cover with 3 cushions in the back constantly, along with surf gear. My car never smells like anything but that car smell.
